pray like it depends on God, work like it depends on you

John Wesley famously said, “Pray like it depends on God, work like it depends on you.”

I would like to rebuttle.

What if I worked like it depended on God?

***I know that some people use excuses like this to opt of sacricifcing and serving and giving. I think God has equipped us and desires for us to “work.”

    By the way, the expression comes from St. Augustine, NOT John Wesley. The exact language is “Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everythind depended on you.”
